People with dogs tend to have a more happening routine than people who do not own one.

Your fur buddy loves that. They need this activity at least once or twice a day because otherwise they will get bored and ruin your working hours by just sticking around, showing bad moods or simply they will get more clingy; they will act up real bad. So if you are parenting a dog, you are at least getting thirty minutes of exercise or walk on a daily basis which not only keeps your dog happy and healthy but also you. You will start to feel great.
